January 26, 1945

Last night around 6:00 p.m. we could hear shooting in the distance and it lasted till around 3:00 a.m. So far today I have not heard any shooting, but at this very minute four American planes flew over. I heard them dive and machine gun. Their targets were Iloilo waterfront.

At 2:30 thirteen flying fortresses flew over us. Also several “Lone Rangers” flew over us though they were on parade. Panay does not offer any resistance, so these planes are in no danger, and we are not bombed so much.
